The former West Central Cooperative employee who allegedly took dozens of bribes worth more than $479,000 in exchange for steep discounts on crop seed and other products, is expected to plead guilty today to a federal charge of wire fraud, court records show.
  • Arrests continue for brutally beaten man
    The former Lanesboro man who was severely injured in a September 2013 brawl at his house — and, ultimately, was arrested for drug crimes the same day felony charges against his alleged assailants were dismissed — led Fort Dodge police on a short chase last week and crashed into an electrical pole, court documents show. 
  • Alleged thief to undergo mental exam
    The former Carroll man accused of driving drunk, stealing a vehicle, trespassing, drug possession and stealing groceries from Walmart and Hy-Vee Food Store in separate incidents in the past three months might suffer from a mental disorder that prevents him from competently defending himself against the accusations, according to court documents. 
  • A 28-year-old Carroll man who punched a fellow jail inmate in the face — which resulted in a cut, black eye, broken tooth and double vision — was sentenced to up to five years in prison for the assault on Thursday. 
  • A former Carroll man — who in the past two months allegedly wrecked his car in a drunken, high-speed crash near Audubon and stole a car in Carroll, parked it in the wrong garage and was arrested for a slew of charges — is broke, according to court records. 
  • Judge affirms minimum 17 years of prison for child rapist
    A 23-year-old Carroll man who was 16 when he raped a 7-year-old girl must serve at least 17 years of his 25-year prison sentence before he is eligible for parole, a judge decided this week. 
  • 10 years’ prison for man who abused child relative
    A 73-year-old rural Glidden man will serve up to 10 years in prison for forcing a child relative to touch his genitalia, a judge decided Monday. 
  • A Lake City man accused of brutally killing a Glidden woman and her adult son last year will stand trial for first-degree murder in May, according to a pending judge’s order that will delay the trial. 
  • Guilty, Guilty, Guilty
    They cried. They sighed. They hugged. The murder trial — and all of its gory details — was finally over. 
  • Murder defense: key witness isn’t credible
    “She knows she’s here to dump on Mr. Schenk,” said attorney Michael Williams of Erika Dains, 37, of Denison, who made a plea deal with prosecutors to testify against Schenk. “She better do something to dump on Michael Schenk, or she doesn’t get that deal.” 
  • Double-murder trial moved to Sioux City
    A 20-year-old Denison man’s double-murder-and-arson trial is set to start in late April in Sioux City, where it was moved after his alleged cohort was convicted of the crimes in Denison in January, according to court records. 
  • Why did Michael Schenk help investigators?
    Double-murder and arson suspect Michael Schenk led investigators to discover a stash of evidence that prosecutors are using to try to put him in prison for life. 
  • Murder suspect sniffles at trial
    He made it through repeated, detailed descriptions of his alleged crime, as well as the testimony of the daughter of the woman he is accused of killing. 
  • A 41-year-old Carroll man will serve 10 years in federal prison for selling large amounts of methamphetamine to an undercover state narcotics enforcement agent several times last year, according to court documents. 
  • ‘Our lives are over’
    With gunshots ringing in the air — more than four, with a reload in between each pull of the trigger — he returned to his two friends. 
  • Murder defendant wants to toss key evidence
    A Walmart receipt that ties a Denison man to a 2014 double-homicide should not be used as evidence in his first-degree murder trial this week because it has faded beyond recognition in the past 10 months, the man’s attorney argues in court documents.
